Every day, your support makes an essential difference around the world. In addition to transforming lives by restoring sight, your heartfelt donations help provide training for all levels of eye care workers – increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of eye care hospitals and improving long-term access to eye care for years to come.

Thanks to supporters like you, we launched a new in-depth training program at Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital, our partner in Delhi, India, in August 2020. Sixteen of their employees joined our year-long “Program on Quality and Excellence” to improve their leadership skills. Taught by Seva Foundation’s Global Training Specialist, Mr. Arun Acharya, the program features weekly three-hour online workshops. These workshops aim to improve participants’ communication skills, helping them develop stronger, more efficient business plans, and train them to promote high-quality care that is STEEEP:  Safe, Timely, Effective, Efficient, Equitable, and Patient-centered. The program is currently on hold due to the Covid-19 situation in India. We will resume once it’s safe to do so.
